Mayhem Film Festival announces EXTRA ORDINARY, SWORD OF GOD (THE MUTE), SOMETHING ELSE and first guests

Posted: Wed, 24 Jul 2019 10:44

Following its biggest ever edition last year, Mayhem Film Festival is back for 2019 and proud to announce the first three titles for this year's festival.

Opening Mayhem's 15th edition is Irish supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary. In rural Ireland, reluctant medium Rose is called upon to save a local teen from the town's resident one-hit wonder rock star, who has somewhat satanic plans to bring his career back from the dead. Expect exorcisms, and plenty of ectoplasm. Mayhem is delighted to welcome special guests from the film for a Q&A after the screening.

Next in this year's line-up is the UK Premiere of immersive Polish historical drama Sword of God (The Mute). In the early Middle Ages, two Christian knights arrive at a pagan village hidden deep in the mountains. Soon, their faith and the bond between them are brutally tested as events spiral out of control, and many will die in the name of God.

Rounding off the first wave of announcements is the genre-bending Something Else. From directors Jeremy Gardner (cult buddy-movie-zombie-outbreak film The Battery) and Christian Stella comes a completely unique take on the monster movie – a love story. When Hank's girlfriend vanishes, leaving only a note behind, his sanity begins to slip and something mysterious stirs in the woods that surround his home.

More events, films and guests for Mayhem 2019 will be announced later in the summer.

Early Bird passes are on sale now at £70, allowing access to the full festival including previews, premieres, and special events.

Mayhem Film Festival will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 10 – 13 October 2019, and more news will be revealed over the summer about this year's edition.

Early Bird passes are now on sale for Mayhem Film Festival 2019, which will take place at Broadway, Nottingham on 10-13 October.

Early Bird passes allow access to the full festival, including all films and special events. The passes are available for a limited period of time for just £70 for four days of exciting previews, premieres, special guests and events, showcasing the best horror, sci-fi and cult features and shorts from around the world. To buy an Early Bird pass, please visit http://www.mayhemfilmfestival.com/tickets or contact the Broadway box office on 0115 952 6611.

Mayhem is also on the lookout for short films for its ever-popular Short Film Showcase. Ahead of its 15th edition, Mayhem will be accepting local, national and international entries, hoping to compile another selection of outstanding short films for what remains a much-loved part of the festival's programme, and still one of its most popular screenings each year.

Now a four-day event, Mayhem originally started as a single compilation of short films, and the short film selection still holds an important place in the festival's schedule. Mayhem 2018 was the biggest edition yet and the festival continues to expand, welcoming more special guests, celebrating new and emerging talent, and highlighting bold and exciting new feature and short films from the dark edges of genre and beyond.

The call for short films is now open and filmmakers can submit their entry, for free, until midnight on Friday 16 August. Submissions must be less than 18 months old and under 22-minute long. To submit your short, complete the submission form at http://bit.ly/MayhemShorts2019
